My five year old and I built the first designs together and since then he's been off and running, on his own when I'm not able to join him. He doesn't always build designs that work but that is actually a good thing, as now he's talking about how the marble didn't have enough momentum to make it through a dip in the track to the next high point. When I initially saw all of the smaller pieces, I worried that it would be too fragile for a 5-year old but the pieces are bendable and so fairly forgiving of structures falling over. I suppose eventually they'll accumulate damage, but I anticipate we'll get a lot of use before that happens.

My husband and I have both had a lot of fun with this toy too--it is easy and fun building really cool roller coasters with loops, spirals, crossing paths and lots of twists and turns.

My only complaint: I wish the blue, circular bases that support the track were heavier or designed so that they could be weighted with sand. As taller supports are built, they have a tendency to tilt and become unstable. We've solved this by using our wooden blocks to weigh them down.

This is a wonderful construction toy for a child who is tired of Knex and Lego. Designing the track so that the marble stays on is a good lesson in momentum and angles. Probably too difficult for any child under 9.

This toy is a lot of fun but it brakes easily. I wold suggest that if you are younger you should get someone older to help. But, other than that it is a lot of fun!

I also wrote a review for the Quercetti Marble Run 224-pc. Set, which I bought for my son last Christmas. This 'younger' set really sparked my son's interest in marble runs, so he asked for the Skyrail set this Christmas because it was more complicated and could do more loops. He loves this set even more than the first. He built his first coaster run, and upon watching the marble complete it's course, his 9 year old brother said, "That is the coolest thing I've ever seen." (and he is not easily impressed with anything).

If you are also buying this as a 'graduate' set, this is a different type of marble run than the other set. Whereas the other set is more gimicky in the ways that marbles can move through vortexes and spinners and is more forgiving of mistakes, this is a true roller coaster. You have the flexibility to make the loop as big or small as you want, but without the right amount of momentum you passenger (the marble) won't make it around the loop and it will fall to the bottom. You may have to explain these types of concepts to a younger child.

I love this set because there is an endless amount of configurations you can create with this set. The instruction book is helpful in giving ideas and getting kids started, but after a few of those, most children will be eager to build one on their own. In addition to the loops and curves you can build, you can also build various tower configurations for a very cool 'layered' effect. This set is definitely worth the money -- I would rather spend $100+ on something that will last and is worthwhile, than $50 on junk that they won't play with in 2 days.

The pieces are well made, but they are not indestructible.

We already had a marble run ($2 at a yard sale) and I wasn't sure it was worth it to get another. But this is a totally different beast!

Our other marble run, which is still lots of fun, consists of plastic, pre-molded pieces that can be fit together in many different ways.

The Skyrail set consists of long, skinny straight track which can be formed into loops and hills and curves. (It's glow in the dark, too, but we haven't really made use of that yet).

The Skyrail set is easy to learn to manipulate-- my 6 year old son is now a champion at using the connector pieces. There are also towers, which must be put together (so can be used in an infinite number of ways) to hold the track off the floor.

It's true that some frustration ensues when my son builds a design and discovers the marbles go flying off it....but then he tweaks his design, finding a way to have the marbles build up speed without being launched off the track.

The diagram book which comes with the set is very helpful-- it shows not only how to fit the pieces together but gives design examples. So far, my son doesn't seem to be able to follow these (so I do), but I like that he can enjoy it now, and grow with it in time.

Our favorite way of using this toy involves draping it over the sofa to create hills, or over tables, etc. If you can tolerate a little mess, in other words, there's a lot of fun to be had with this. (And my 4 year old daughter is also starting to manipulate the pieces).

We've owned other marble runs before, but they didn't have the flexibilty that this kit offers. There are enough pieces that when it's set up, it takes up our whole living room! There are enough of each type of piece, too, so that our children can build linearly as well as vertically. There are detailed instructions that give you hints on how to build interesting features, like a loop-the-loop and various kinds of curves. And best of all, it collapses back down into the box for storage!
